Senior leaders focus on professional development
ABERDEEN, Md. -- Senior civilian leaders met with up-and-coming Aberdeen Proving Ground managers for a panel discussion on human capital, mentorship and transformation issues Aug. 25 at the Aberdeen Higher Education and Conference Center.
This is the second iteration of the APG Leadership Cohort Program. Twelve Army organizations from the installation selected 29 motivated managers to participate in a year-long professional development program designed to develop future civilian leaders. This group started in April, and they meet for two days each month.
"We're going through a change at Aberdeen Proving Ground that is unprecedented," said Gary Martin, U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command executive deputy to the command general. “About the only time Aberdeen has seen this much activity was in 1917 when they created the post.”
